Most folks who have chosen heat pumps for their homes are very happy with that decision. They enjoy effective cooling—and heating!—and efficient operation that keeps their utility bills down. And those benefits can last a long time. But nothing lasts forever. Eventually, heat pumps do need to be replaced. How can you tell that it’s time to retire your old heat pump in favor of a new one? Here are some key signs to be aware of.

Age

Heat pumps can work effectively and efficiently for twenty or even twenty-five years! Of course, they’ll only make it that long if they have regular maintenance, and because of the year-round nature of the service they provide, “regular” maintenance for a heat pump means twice a year. The thing to keep in mind is that, even if your heat pump is not quite that old, most of the problems you’ll encounter with a heat pump will be in the last few years of its life. This means that there will come a time when you’ll have to weigh the option of continuing to invest in an aged system that needs a repair against the possibility of replacement. A small repair on an otherwise functional system that’s getting a little old might be an excellent choice. An expensive repair on a struggling system that’s past two decades old already would probably not be the wisest use of your money.

Repair Frequency

It’s not just the cost of a single repair that you should consider. How often has your heat pump been needing to be serviced? Twice-yearly maintenance should keep your heat pump in such good condition that it rarely needs repairs, but rarely does not mean never. However, if you’ve been needing to call in a technician multiple times a year for heat pump repair in Bellview, FL, keep in mind that those costs add up. Consider whether you want to keep investing in your heat pump that way, or whether it might be time for a replacement.

Poor Performance

The key benefits of heat pumps are their effectiveness and their efficiency. Regular maintenance can keep them working well and keep their energy usage low for a long time. But again, nothing lasts forever. At the end of a heat pump’s life, you may notice that both of these things start to slip. If you’re paying more than you expect when your utility bills come in, even though you’ve had maintenance done, it can be a sign that replacement is on the horizon. And if you don’t feel that you’re getting the same amount of comfort from your heat pump that you used to, and your home has hot spots, or uneven or inconsistent heating and cooling, you should definitely start to think about replacing it.

Heat Pump Installation

Our team of qualified technicians can help you to choose a new system that will fit the size of your home and the needs of your family.
